Ubuntu LAMP Stack One-Click Install Apps

I create my droplet chosing phpmyadmin via “one-click apps”.

I can not access in any way.

In console I get: Access denied for user ‘root’@'localhost’ (using password: NO)

Via Web also can not access with my droplet username and password.

How to proceed?

Use “phpmyadmin” instead of “root” as user.

Access to phpmyadmin uses the MySQL credentials, not your server droplet. Login to your droplet and run the following command:

cat /etc/motd.tail

Your MySQL password should be there.

but it is showing file not found with this name
